Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Mention "workamping," and working for a campground, as part of the campground staff is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Indeed for many, living in an RV park or a state or national park is part of the allure of the working while RVing lifestyle.

But, if you want something different, you have lots of options. Some, at first glance may seem far-fetched. However, they may be more practical than you initially think.

Wherever you are in your work and travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

Psychics Are in Demand and You May Already Have What it Takes to Be One

Work as a tarot card reader or fortune teller. Don't dismiss this as being for only the supernatural with obscure clairvoyant, metaphysical powers.

What is it that clairvoyants really do? They look at past patterns and future opportunities, and make predictions.

Can you guess right half the time? One expert source is Joe Nicols. He is the author of How to Make A Good Living as a Psychic. Nicols is successfully practicing in Austin, Texas. He says a psychic needs to be accurate at least 50% of the time.

Think about that. You have a 50/50 chance of guessing right. Nicols suggests that for repeat business, you should be 70-80% accurate.

People pay dearly for these predictions. A friend went on a cruise with Sylvia Brown. She paid thousands of dollars for the trip. An acquaintance gave his girlfriend a telepathic telephone consultation. I forget the exact price, but it was several hundred dollars.

The thing that intrigued me about the telephone psychic reading is that he was required to give information about his girlfriend prior to the consultation.

It seemed to me that the powers were based on some general knowledge about people, good listening skills, being aware of body language, and common sense.

Is special training required for these psychic jobs? While there is certification for professional psychics, I didn't find anything indicating training or certification is required to practice.

Working RVer Tip

Shopping at a particular store (or using their service) may give you an edge for employment there. Since you are already familiar with the merchandise (service) your training time may be less than for someone who doesn't have that knowledge.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Triple Check Resume for Better Responses

~~ An RVer writes: I have been emailing job applications and most of these people never respond. That is just rude.

~~ I answered in part: Are you saying that you expect to receive a reply from every business that you submit a job application to? If so, your expectations are very much out of touch with the real business world.

Businesses typically only reply to job applicants that have made at least the first cut. If they aren't interested in hiring you, they don't respond. A business may receive hundreds of applications for one position. They sort through them, and select some to pursue further. That isn't rude -- that is normal business practice.

A few more thoughts…

If the job application you are sending out is not getting the desired response, maybe it is time to change it. Look over your application to see how you could improve it. Make sure it highlights your skills and abilities, not your inexperience. Omit personal information that isn't relevant to the job. Double check it to see that you have your correct contact information on it. Triple check it to see that you are presenting yourself in a positive manner.

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
